Transition to 9th Grade

The MEHMS Counseling Department invites the Parents/Guardians of our rising 9th grade students to attend our high school transition events in January and February. In conjunction with the GMHS Counseling Department and IB Coordinator, we will be holding several events to help with transition to GMHS.

We will be going over how to understand high school transcripts and diploma types, information about the IB (International Baccalaureate) program, and discussing registration for courses at George Mason High School. The dates are:

January 25th- IB Information Night 7PM Mustang Cafe

January 31st- Transcript and Diploma Options 7PM Mustang Cafe

February 1st- Transcript and Diploma Options 9:15AM Rm 006/007 MEH

February 8th- Course Registration Overview 7PM Mustang Cafe

Please note that we will be holding a morning and an evening session for the “Transcript and Diploma Options,” so you only need to attend one session. The "IB Information Night" and “Rising 9 Course Registration Overview” will be held once in the evening. The morning session will be held at MEHMS, and the evening events will be held at GMHS.

We look forward to making the transition to GMHS a smooth process. If you have any questions about any of these events or transition in general, please feel free to email Ms. Filmyer at
